2018 Lecture, Annual Dinner and AGM
Friday 8th June 2018
The Malcolm Young Lecture
Our speaker this year will be Alan Ereira, and his recent book The Nine Lives of John Ogilby, Britain’s Master Map Maker and his Secrets will be the inspiration for his talk. (Pictured is last year’s winner of the Helen Wallis / IMCoS Award, Professor Emeritus Vladimiro Valeri, with IMCoS President Peter Barber.)
Alan Ereira is a historian and award-winning documentary film-maker. He has worked extensively with the isolated Kogi people of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Columbia, perhaps the last un-acculturated high civilisation of pre-Columbian America, who inspired his study of seventeenth century England. He is currently a Professor of Practice at the University of Wales, Trinity St David and is writing Gold: A History.
